16 A Feeder Pattern Approach: Using Connectivity to Create Continuous Improvement in Math and Science High School College/ University Middle School Elementary School Pre K Center A fine-tuned mechanism is more than the sum of its parts. It should be looked at as an integrated whole, not as a set of individualized and independent parts. Ideally, each part improves the next.

The future belongs to those that never lose sight of their dreams, aspirations, and more importantly, those that pay attention to the omens along the way. – Dr. Reagan Flowers, Inspired by the World Contact Information: Dr. Reagan Flowers Contact Information: Dr. Reagan Flowers

25 National Science Board Report U.S. science and engineering is strong, but U.S. dominance of world science and engineering has eroded significantly in recent years, primarily because of rapidly increasing capabilities among East Asian nations, particularly China. This information was central in the most recent report from the National Science Board, Science and Engineering Indicators An updated version is released every two years. The report is considered a major authoritative source of U.S.s and international data on science, engineering, and technology and contains a wealth of indicators on research and developing, spending, trends in higher education, and workforce development in science and engineering fields, public attitudes toward science and technology, and new patterns of international collaboration in research.
